Amazon reviews on Francis's Book: "A Practical Guide to working with Suicidal Youth, A New Zealand Perspective."
“This was a very insightful read. Frank, honest, and totally accessible. It takes a lot of the “mystery” of therapy away and gives a refreshing window into what can be achieved. I hope to see more of this author in the future.”
“This short book is packed full of practical ideas based on a well thought out and well tested rationale all backed up by enthralling and often tear jerking real stories. It is written in such an accessible language and is such a pleasant departure from the wooden style of many clinical books. This book could have an impact well beyond the shores of New Zealand.”
